I’m a UX researcher and behavioral scientist on the Growth team. Before joining Facebook I was a postdoctoral scholar in Health Psychology at UC Merced, studying how adolescents and young adults use social resources to manage diabetes. I earned a PhD and MA in developmental psychology at UC Davis with a focus on young children’s healthy emotional developmental within the context of parent-child and peer relationships, and a BA in psychology at Reed College.
